Charting Ways Out of the European Impasse #AUGUR

This memorandum written by participants of a 3-year research project on Europe and the world’s socioeconomic future to 2030 (the AUGUR project) discusses possible ways out of prolonged stagnation and low growth. The current trajectory can trigger renewed crises of political-economic sclerosis in Europe and progressively undermine social standards and well-being. Such an outcome would strengthen the forces that aim to dismantle European integration. An overriding priority must be given to rebalancing the distribution of growth between different parts of Europe.

The ENVIRONMENTAL INDUSTRY SECTOR - what is it? #AUGUR

There is a lot of resistance to internationalist economics as there is too to environmental concerns especially climate warming and carbon tax implications, which are not merely short-run crisis responses but will be embedded long-term etc. Environmentalism Industry as a sector is still something of a super- or para- industry classification not unlike how the personal computer industry was viewed in the 1980s as a service not resented because promoted as a cost-saving efficiency also by business gurus and all major consultancies. Environmentalism has the opposite profile by not obviously offering cost-savings and because the gains are social as if more like a tax and therefore in some views an unwarranted restriction on growth.

Kapital has transitioned to the state (ref. AMA) Political Economix & Rational Expectations

What we have to realize is that ‘capital has transitioned to the state’[1]; through the bail-outs and bail-ins, QE’s & SLS’s, LTRO’s & EFSFs; TARPs & twists; capital has transitioned to the state; it has happened, it is ‘what it is’; de-facto (not de-jure); capital has crossed the great libertarian 'blood brain barrier' and it did it @ a ridiculously low price with the greatest irony of all, no central planning!

The Political Economy of LTRO

INTRODUCTION

It's LTRO[1] that I’m talking about this time! LTRO the latest version of “economic life support those” crackpot surgeons in the Central Banks and Treasuries of Europe have come up with. What is the issue with it? As LTRO2 approaches, to on the leap day (29/2/2012) I present a number of theses about LTRO;

1.      LTRO is a workaround for Crowding Out

2.      LTRO is executed via a process called 'Round Tripping' or known as a ‘Carry Trade’

3.      Hedge Funds are intrinsic to the success of LTRO

4.      This makes governments dependent upon Hedge Funds (& not just the banks)

5.      LTRO creates a cash balloon which props up the equity market

6.      LTRO is a high-risk central bank strategy which could deflate at a stroke

7.      Ironically the very Hedge Funds and Asset Managers who are intrinsic to the success of LTRO are already freaked out by the high risk nature of the policy,

Paul Donovan - UBS: the euro is like the Hotel California: once you join you can never leave

‘You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave’

 

A potential ‘complete’ solution to the crisis is to abolish the euro or kick troubled countries out of the monetary union. While there is a satisfying simplicity to these options, they should only be thought of as last-ditch alternatives. The cost of reinstating a sovereign currency would be horrendous. As Paul Donovan, deputy chief global economist at UBS said on Bloomberg Radio, “the euro is like the Hotel California: once you join you can never leave”.
